Milan, July 19 - The United States will make sure a
former CIA agent convicted for masterminding the rendition of a
Muslim cleric from Milan in 2003 will not be extradited from
Panama to Italy, one of the prosecutors in the case said Friday.
"The US authorities will oppose the extradition of Robert
Seldon Lady in all ways and will exert pressure in all
directions to make sure that does not happen," said Milan
prosecutor Ferdinando Pomarici, who helped secure a nine-year
conviction for Lady, former CIA station chief in Milan.
Pomarici said he was "sure" Lady would not be extradited
from Panama as Italy is set to request.
Lady, detained by Panamanian police over an entry violation
from Costa Rica, was handed over to Interpol Thursday night on
an international warrant issued by Italy in connection with the
abduction and transfer to Egypt of imam Hassan Mustafa Omar
Nasr.
Italy and Panama do not have an extradition treaty and the
US, which wields influence in the Central America country, is
famously unwilling to hand its citizens over to foreign
jurisdictions.
